JEFFERSON CITY — Missouri utility regulators have scheduled eight public hearings on a proposed high-voltage power line across northern Missouri.

The Grain Belt Express project would carry power generated from wind turbines in Kansas eastward across Missouri and Illinois to a substation in Indiana. The 750-mile project is estimated to cost $2.2 billion.

The Missouri Public Service Commission is considering whether to grant a certificate for the transmission lines to be built and operated. Public hearings are scheduled in all eight counties that the power lines would cross.

The first hearings are set for Aug. 5 in Cameron and St. Joseph. Additional hearings will be held Aug. 12 in Monroe City and Hannibal; Aug. 13 in Marceline and Moberly; and Sept. 4 in Hamilton and Carrolton.
